Certain X-ray stuctures as PDB files display well under
Chime but poorly under Jmol.
I have created a web page to demonstrate the problems
which range from incorrectly sizing the structure in the
frame, failing to display the central lanthanide ion, and
introducing spurious bonds to nearby lithium ions.
There is a wide variety of software that claims to export PDB
files but the resulting files are not all the same! It would be
useful if Jmol was as forgiving as possible.
This represents a significant problem for anyone seeking to
convert a Chime based site as every structure would require
careful individual checking.
